no not stupid at all we have all been at that white fear moment with the blood draining of omg *&%$£ have i dune.

but if you need the info agen here you go ftp into your forum find .htaccess and settings.pl now download them to your pc and in a text editor i.e. notpad not a word processor open the files and look for your ip then remove it then save and reupload the files dir for files are cgi-bin/yabb2/.htaccess  and cgi-bin/yabb2/Variables/settings.pl

the banned IP list (if you're not using Guardian to change your .htaccess file, is (in 2.5 AE) in settings.pl, down near the bottom.

will look like this.

Code
Select All
###############################################################################
# Banning Settings (old ban.txt) † †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †#
###############################################################################

$ip_banlist = ""; † †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† # IP banlist
$email_banlist = ""; † †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† # EMAIL banlist
$user_banlist = ""; † †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †† †# USER banlist

Never mind! I guess I'm not as stupid as I am making myself look because at least I figured out how to correct the problem. I took my iphone off wifi, logged into my forum that way (without my normal ip address), and removed my own ip from the banned list. Sorry to waste your time....

Problem - banned from my own forum! Help

A couple days ago I asked for information regarding banning a problem member from my forum. Well, this morning, I banned her IP addresses and username. I have been on my forum throughout the day. Now, this evening, I pulled up my forum and it tells me I am banned!

What in the world am I going to do? I run a large medical patient support forum and must get back on....

Thanks,
Deborah
